Truckload of Sky: The Lost Songs of David McComb

Concert or Performance

23 Apr 2022 Once Only Event

A special live show featuring Evil Graham Lee and Rob McComb (the Triffids), Phil Kakulas (Blackeyed Susans), J.P Shilo (Blackeyed Susans, Hungry Ghosts, Rowland S. Howard, Mick Harvey), Dan Luscombe (The Drones) and Clare Moore (Dave Graney, Coral Snakes, Moodists). Singers include Rob Snarski (Blackeyed Susans), Alex Gow (Oh Mercy) and Angie Hart (Frente).

Over the past couple of years some friends of David McComb, lead singer and songwriter from acclaimed Australian band The Triffids, have been bringing to life a treasure trove of superb songs from his pen. These are songs that were not recorded, most not yet written, during the Triffids’ span in the 1970s and 1980s, rather they were written in Melbourne and London in the 1990s and never properly recorded for various reasons. For the first time ever in Western Australia, an incredibly special ensemble of David’s musical friends will bring these unearthed songs to life.

The songs are not cast-offs, it’s more a case of time running out for their writer, sadly. They were recorded over a couple of summers by an assemblage of musicians who have good reason to believe they could do them the sort of justice they deserve.
